Supported by the team of professionals in our Technology Department, Saint Stephen’s is committed to providing the best and most up-to-date technological tools for faculty, students, and administration. Nearly three-quarters of our classrooms are outfitted with high-tech teaching aids, including smart projectors and touch screen educational devices. Our one-to-one iPad initiative for 4th-12th grade students has dynamically revolutionized the classroom, fostering an unprecedented level of learning and understanding.
Younger students are exposed to technology several times per week. They learn vital skills such as digital citizenship, internet search tools, video acquisition and editing, and basic iPad and computer use. By the time students reach seventh grade, they have been exposed to multiple computers and operating systems, and are highly knowledgeable about the technology around them.
In the Upper School, the Technology Internship course is designed to identify and nurture future technology professionals who have a desire to pursue this exciting field of study. Students learn how a technology operation functions, in real time, by working on real-world problems. Students also put their knowledge into practice in our annual Battle Bots Competition and other long term projects.
Our Computer Science courses explore the challenging world of computer programming. Using programming languages such as Blockly, Python, and Java, the days of meticulous coding and endless troubleshooting are gone. From their first day, Computer Science students are immersed in a creative, collaborative process, with colorful, thought-provoking results.
At Saint Stephen’s, S.T.E.A.M. is a way of life, not just the latest marketing slogan. We incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, into everything we do. The use of 3D printers allows students to design a project in the computer, then turn their design into a physical work of art. Aerodynamic design puts physics into action, and student-led support of technology creates a cohesive, vibrant, and trusting community.
